Not only do I have no clue who Tinashe is or what songs she’s been in, I’m not entirely sure I even know how to properly pronounce her name.
But I’m going to have to learn, because this chick has been EVERYWHERE in 2017, at least for me and my Instagram feed. Not that I’m complaining or anything, because well, look at her, but I just figured that if she’s going to be popping up all over social media, I might as well figure out who the hell she is.
Tinashe Jorgenson Kachingwe, known professionally as just Tinashe, was born on February 6, 1993. She is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress, and former model who began her career at the age of three when she started modeling and acting. Here’s a relatively wild fun fact about Tinashe: In 2004, she provided the motion capture from the female protagonist in The Polar Express alongside actor Tom Hanks.
In 2012, Tinashe released two critically acclaimed mixtapes, In Case We Die and Reverie, which she recorded at her home studio. After those two successful releases, Tinashe signed with RCA Records and released her third mixtape, Black Water, in 2013. In 2015, Tinashe was nominated for “Best New Artist” at the BET Awards.
In March 2017, Tinashe released a new single called “Flame” and released some fire pictures to promote it.
